120m, 4 pitches. Excellent climbing, a mixture of sport and trad. The highlight is the superb flake of pitch 2. P1 is much harder than the rest of the route, and can be avoided by climbing the first 3 pitches of Wide Sierra, then scrambling Rightwards to reach the ledge below P2.

Follows the obvious line of the huge flake starting at a large pinnacle.
1) 30m F6a+ Climb an easy groove and left along a ledge. Make very thin moves past 2 bolts and continue more easily but with no further protection for 20m to a belay.
2) 30m VS 4c Step left and follow the undercut flake rightwards to belay at a block.
3) 45m VS 4a Climb the slab to regain the flake, protected by a single bolt, and follow it until a step left over the overlap gains a second bolt. Up left to belay on a ledge, ignoring the two bolts which are on the abseil "piste".
4) 15m F5 Climb the summit block with 2 bolts to protect.
The initial abseil bolts will be found a little higher. If you choose to walk off take shoes - it's further than you might think.
